Virtual Retail Therapy Part 2: Kat’s Bag Fetish

Friday, January 29th, 2010

I have a bag fetish. OK, maybe I have a few more fetishes than that, but the ones that I can mention publicly are my love of bags, shoes and jackets. I have a disproportionate amount of them, and I don’t mean the latest Prada or Kate Spade bag — just backpacks, laptop bags, messenger type bags, etc. I did an inventory this morning and not counting actual luggage, I own:

3 backpacks
3 laptop bags (my favorite)
7 shoulder / messenger bags
2 camera bags

Hm, 15 is kind of a lot. That is not including LLBean shopping bags either.

Anyway, in the continued vein of Virtual Retail Therapy, there is one more bag that I want to buy, but it will remain on the “should not spend so much money”. It’s a lovely messenger bag from Queen Bee Creations. Cute, eh? And of course, green. [grin]

Here is a list of seven random things I intend to buy for myself, when I have extra cash. They are all a little on the pricier side, so a little advanced budgeting is in order. Because these are “bigger” ideas for shopping, I have to think of seven appropriate goals for myself to earn them. I have three goals; now I need to think of four more. These are in no particular order.

1. Saddleback Leather Medium Briefcase Bag, Dark Tabacco Brown

2. Pottery Barn Tall Tibetan Barstool, Black

3. Crate and Barrel White Belmont Kitchen Island, White

4. Domaine Coteau, case of 2007 Pinot Noir (favorite wine ever!)

5. The absolutely amazingly lovely Tourron Dinnerware, in Avocado for 8 plus all the serving stuff, from Didriks

6. Amazon Kindle

7. Sundance Catalogue Candelabrum (which I think would make a great alternative to a Christmas Tree; yes, I am silly)

And no, this does not include an Audi A5 [grin].
